The BGWP Student Scholarship is dedicated to our young emerging artists undergoing formal training and education in the visual arts. Currently, women represent about 70% of Bachelors's of Fine Art (BFA) degree holders in the U.S., though only less than 50% of working artists across all art disciples are women (National Museum of Women in the Arts). And less than 18% of BFA degree recipients identify as Black/African-American, Hispanic/Latino, or Native American/Pacific Islander. As such, we have created this scholarship to support our next generation of talented Black women artists. Each Spring and Fall semester, two students between the ages of 17-21 currently enrolled at least part-time in a visual arts program will receive the BGWP Student Scholarship, a $1,000 academic award to help offset the cost of art supplies, program fees, food, academic expenses, etc.!
The Fall 22' Student Scholarship Application will be announced on 7/1/22.
